Jingle jingle! It’s the holiday time of year, and at MPN Training, we are in the spirit of celebrating. I’m happy to announce a variety of special savings on tools and resources that can help you learn – and save some money in the process.
 
These deals begin November 28 and last only through December 8, so you’ll want to act quickly. There are a few different offers from which to choose.
 
Practice tests
Do you wish to study before you take your certification exam? Practice tests are a great way to gauge your knowledge and any gaps. The tests offer questions and content similar to those on the real exam. Starting November 28, enjoy a couple of different offers around practice tests:
  • Save 50% on practice tests from Transcender.
  • Purchase a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exam voucher and get a Microsoft practice test from MeasureUp at no additional cost. Note the certification exam must be taken by December 31, 2014. Details on PearsonVUE website.
Microsoft Press Store
The Microsoft Press Store offers books and ebooks to help you study. During the holiday season, Microsoft Press Store is offering exclusive Microsoft Partner Network community savings: for all books and ebooks, buy 1 and save 45%, or buy 2 and save 55% when you apply discount code MPNSAVES during checkout. Check out the Microsoft Press Store.
